Leaders are not remembered for their dreams, aspirations, or intentions. They are remembered because they moved agendas. Ideas and visions don't necessarily make someone a leader, and neither do charm and personality. Brilliant ideas are a great starting point, and charisma and charm are fine, but leadership means being able to get things done. Leadership is not simply about having an agenda but having the pragmatic skills to move that agenda.
